You have to wonder how much Google's people get wined and dined when they're looking to build a new datacenter and what really goes on behind closed doors - especially when you have nations competing against each other to ensure that they'll be the ones who finally get the Google dollars:

The announcement comes just days after the economic minister in Taiwan said Google is "leaning toward" developing a major data center in Taiwan. Various other reports suggest Google has also scouted locations in Japan, South Korea, India and even Vietnam (which just announced its first data center).
